A Symposium on Research in 21st Century Art Museums

The organizers of the conference aim to stimulate a critical debate on the potentialities of the art museum as a research-based institution – between the discursive and the immersive. The conference will focus on the significance of hybrid forms of research and curating in modern and contemporary art museums, dealing with questions such as: How can exhibitions function as mediums for research? How can artistic research contribute to art museums? What is the research value of (immersive) exhibitions? What is the role of the sensory experience in gathering and disseminating knowledge in the museum? What is the function and position of 'public programs' as curatorial models for research and knowledge production? What does the public contribute to the museum's knowledge production?

The conference welcomes theoretically founded contributions as well as practice-based contributions that contribute with model cases or concrete experiments in the field.

A selection of the contributions to the conference will be shared in forthcoming issue of Stedelijk Studies, the new online peer-reviewed journal of the Stedelijk Museum.
